The flight mode switcher has been designed for open source autopilots such as the APM, Pixhawk and PX4 etc. It can switch the flight mode accurately and quickly and replaces the troublesome 2 stage and 3 stage switchers.

Users can set the parameters for the flight mode switcher on the unit and choose the most suitable modes for their requirements.

Typical flight modes are as follows:

  • STA (Stabilized) Model will automatically level itself
  • SIM (Simple) Allows you to control the movement of the model from the pilots point of view regardless of which way the model is facing
  • ALT (Altitude Hold) When this mode is selected it will hold this altitude
  • LOI (Loiter) Allows model to hover in the same spot on its own without any input from the pilot
  • AUT (Auto) The model will follow a pre-programmed course stored in the autopilot
  • RTL (Return to land) Once selected the model will return and land at the point of take-off

The flight mode switcher is simple to install on your transmitter but it is not plug & play, there is a small amount of soldering required to fit the unit to your radio control. See the manual for installation instructions.

Once installed on your transmitter and set up in "Mission Planner" it is very simple to use, just press the relevant mode button on the switcher and the model will go into that mode. There is an indicator light to show which mode has been selected and is in use.


  • Allows the user to easily switch between 6 flight modes
  • Simple and straightforward to install
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Status indicator lights

Is the installation mandatory in the pot?

Is it not possible to install on the 3-position switch?

My radio is FS-i6X. I didn't want to lose the control features of the camera gimbal.

I see no reason why you couldn't install it in place of a 3-pos switch, it should work in the same way.
